you mean when you turn it "on" and press the gas??

intake manifolds go out on every one of those cars. Theyll cause a vacuum leak and the engine wont run right. Also can cause an oil leak.

Some also have computer problems, sounds like its flooding the hell out of it so it wont even start up.

Is the check engine light on? Does it smell like unburnt gas when it's dying out? Can you hear any vacuum lines hissing under the hood with it idleing? How many miles on the engine?
